Not much thought went into choosing a hotel for an overnight stay in San Francisco! It was only a starting point for a California road trip. Priced reasonably and located touristically it seemed an okay no-fuss choice. Pleasantly surprising, though, was a series of top of the line services. From welcoming the car at the front door, Bell desk service,...

We had a really great stay at Monaco. We arrived before our check in time and were delighted to be offered a room straight away. It was very comfortable and I was especially pleased with the offer to supply a coffee machine in our room - we asked for one straight away. The room was very comfortable and had a...

Excellent service and a warm welcome. Our room (queen size) was very nice with comfortable beds. The hotel is only a few minutes walk away from Union Square. For my next trip to San Francisco I will choose this hotel again.

Kimpton only knows how to do it right, The Monaco is such a consistent hotel. Every stay is the same. The staff knows you, the room is perfect the property is maintained. So very nice. If your stay is for a special occasion, let them know and you'll be pleased.

We recently went to San Francisco for a weekend. I checked out a lot of hotels all about the same price. I chose Hotel Monaco. I must tell you the concierge was excellent the follow through with me was great. The check in was easy and friendly. The hotel lobby is small and there is a parlor, but every evening...

I've been fortunate to stay at several of the Monaco hotels thru-out the States. Lucky me! The majority of stays have in San Francisco due to biz trips. However, regardless if San Fran, Washington, DC, Boston, Chicago or elsewhere, the Monaco standard has been extraordinary high with a superb twist of fun, humour, superb service, food & cocktails. :-) will...

My wife and I visited the Monaco early in November (2013), and not having visited the West coast of the States before, were unsure of what to expect. First impressions are always important, and we stepped off the train (BART) just a few minutes walk from a vibrant and colourful Union Square. Good start. Just a few more minutes walk...

We stayed at the Hotel Monaco for just one night. The first thing that bothered me was the fact that the valet left my car in the middle of the crosswalk. I was worried it was going to get hit. As we walked away from the car, I asked him if he had the key, and if the door was...

This hotel was recommended by my brother who uses it for business trips, and this was our second visit to this excellent hotel. It is ideally situated just two blocks from Union Square, and within a short walk of Powell Street BART station. Our room was very comfortable. The staff were incredibly friendly, and very helpful.

The hotel and restaurant have great decor in the eclectic & colorful Kimpton style. The desk service was professional but perhaps a bit more"matter of fact, business" oriented then other Kimptons" that I have visited. The room was nicely decorated in the Kimpton style. If being overly picky, then I was somewhat at issue with the room lighting. It was...
